Christopher Dorner Standoff

Newscast PRANKED

By Howard Stern Fan

021213_cbs_stern_prank_launch
It was only a matter of time ... but a Howard Stern fan managed to infiltrate the Christopher Dorner news coverage by posing as an expert ... and PRANKED a Los Angeles TV station live on the air.

The caller got through to KCBS-TV moments ago claiming to be a State Fish and Game ranger named Mike Taugher ... and he was SUPPOSED to recap the events leading up to the shootout.

It started out pretty believable ... but when the caller name-dropped Ronnie The Limo Driver (a Stern regular) it was pretty clear CBS has just been hoaxed.

... well, obvious to everyone but the anchor ... who continued engaging the caller until he told her it was a joke and called her a "dumbass."

Captain janks is a moron but in the clamor to be the first to report something news has stopped verifying sources to get the most attention

I have to admit that was pretty funny. Calling the reporter a dumbass at the end was pretty mean though. Uncalled for.

Whoever initiated the prank is an ********!! I'm sure the family and friends of the officer that was killed thinks it was real funny. What a douche bag.

So Howard Stern thinks the manhunt for a cop killer is cause for humour?
What an *******.

Howard Stern is an a**hole! Just like the loser who made that phone call!!! This guy is dangerous, ready to kill people (has already killed 4 people), and this low-class jerko** makes a call to a TV station pretending to be with fish & game thinking its funny???? I hope somebody beats the holy hell out of you you jacka**! F-ing loser!!!

I hope this ******** gets arrested! There is a time and place for funny things, and minutes after a cop gets killed is not a good time. **** him and **** Howard!

I'm not a fancy TV producer or anything but shouldn't someone have checked him out? He just maybe right for calling her a dumbass. Poor dumbass. :/
